A couple shots of my puggle, Rufus, with my new (to me) D80 and 50mm f/1.8 lens. TSJ and Dmo, I highly recommend that lens.. cheap, and very very sharp. Jenny, the lens would work on the D40 but it won't autofocus.. still a good deal if you don't mind manually focusing.
Edit Just noticed the blown out highlights on his chest (
Here's a couple more
I hate you for having gotten a D80 and having a dog.
I have that same lens too (gotta love the depth of field you get with it) but have gotten used to manual focusing it on my D40x.
Damn, CG, that really is a nice lense.
Good pics too.
I've thought about this lens myself. My only concern was that it wasn't a DX lens, but a standard SLR lens. So the 50mm focal length translates to around 75mm for a DSLR. Seems kinda long for a general purpose lens, especially for indoor shots. Yet people still rave over it, even those with digitals, and many recommend it for indoor, low-light shooting. I take it you don't find the focal length too limiting?
I may have to pick one of these up.
Dmo - I've definitely not had a problem with the focal length, though usually when I have the 50mm lens on, I've got a subject in mind and can position myself accordingly.
I'd probably prefer a 30mm lens, but for the price ($100), I don't think the 50mm can be beat.
Hot damn that dog is sexah.
I love the look on his face in the first pic. lol
